Do you notice when moisture levels in your house change? As my grandson lives with us and suffers from asthma I like to keep an eye on humidity and try to make our home as healthy as possible for him.
Medical studies have confirmed that high levels of humidity (moisture) in homes – above 50-60% - increase the risk of asthma and diseases. It’s important to keep an eye on the humidity levels in your house.
Mould accumulates in badly ventilated moist homes and inhaling spores can cause inflamed airways , coughing and nasal issues as well as throat problems . If you have asthma or allergies you are more prone to severe symptoms when exposed.
The more we are exposed to moisture / condensation in mouldy damp homes the worse it gets for our health.
A Hygrometer tells me the percentage of humidity in the room I place it in, so I know if I need to ventilate it.
Some new houses being built have doors and windows that do not allow for ventilation. They are so tightly sealed that no air can get through.In older style houses you may get air flow but often the houses are built with older, less efficient materials trapping mould and moisture within the walls of these homes.
The Living Climate Hygrometer displays easy to understand values for indoor climate reading in any type of house.Here at Barometers and Clocks we have a range of Hygrometer’s – either combined weather stations or just Hygrometers that will allow you effectively manage the moisture in your house.
